How to Edit Shopify Pages
If you want to standout from the overly saturated online market with generic templates, then you should (or maybe you are) definitely check out customizing your Shopify pages
If you already have a Shopify account and if you have done your research, you know that customization and personalization are some key strategies that help with conversions. A well designed and customized page that really represents your brand and delivers awesome user experience can lead to higher conversion.
Plus, you also need to know how to edit your pages for when you need to update information. As your business grows and time passes by, the information on your site will need to be updated and relevant.
But then, how do you even get started? It might sound intimidating especially for beginners or those without any technical knowhow. Fortunately, Shopify makes every process of building and designing your own eCommerce store easier.
In this article, we share with you some of the ways you can edit your Shopify pages so you can customize it and make it aligned with your brand.

How to edit product pages within Shopify admin
Now if you want to customize your product pages, there are 2 ways to do that inside your Shopify dashboard. First is to use your theme’s default settings, and the second is to edit the theme’s code.
Use default theme settings
When you use your default theme’s settings, your customizes will rely on the theme you applied but there will be limitations such as:
Shopify’s product page sections are limited and most themes do not allow you to change how they are laid out. So if you want to add additional sections more than what is afford, it won’t be possible with the default theme
Just like in the above section, layouts are pretty much fixed (photos on the left, descriptions on the right). You can’t change this or any of the elements on the Shopify product pages.
If you are okay with those limitations, here are some adjustments you can do:
- Text colors
- Cart page appearance
- Button size
This is great if you don’t want to do any coding or hire any experts.
To do this:
Step 1: Under online store, click Themes
Step 2: Click customize, then you will be taken to the Theme editing page
Step 3: Here you can choose Product Pages from the drop down menu
Step 4: You can start changing elements such as text colors, cart page appearance, button size, etc
Step 5: Click Save on the upper right corner
If you want to make more changes other than what your theme’s default settings is giving you, you can opt to customize your code. This will require coding and if you aren’t familiar with it, an expert.
What you need to customize code:
Shopify themes are written in these coding languages and it is needed for you to be knowledgeable about them before you can edit the theme code
First, head to Online store, go to Themes from your Shopify dashboard. Choose the Customize button to be taken to the theme editing page. After that, choose Theme actions, then Edit code on your theme editing page to access the code of your own theme.
How to edit your code
To start editing your code, from your theme files, look for /templates/product.liquid this is the file name for your product page.
If you are someone with experience and knowledge in CSS, HTML and you already understand Liquid, then you should be able to customize Shopify theme pages on your own.
- Before you editing your code, always make sure to make a backup copy of this theme so that you have something to go back to
- You need to ensure that the changes you made are under the theme developer’s support. If not, you won’t get any support for any issues you might encounter after editing
- Consider hiring a Shopify expert to customize your pages
Hiring a Shopify expert saves you a lot of time and saves you from the headache of having to research and learn how to code. Not to mention the fact that Shopify has its own coding language, Liquid which you’ll also need to learn.
Having a Shopify expert help you can also ensure best results. You will also be able to focus on other things because you can be rest assured that someone reliable is working on your pages.
